So 'Vitamins Don't Work,' Eh?

% of readers think this story is Fact. Add your two cents.

Exclusive: Dr. Lee Hieb says to beware studies that deny the obvious



The big news in health this month was that “Vitamins don’t work.”

That headline was reported on the Drudge Report, and multiple sources picked up on three studies looking at “multivitamins.” The reporters presumably loved the title of the editorial “Enough is Enough: Stop Wasting Money on Vitamin and Mineral Supplements.”

Now I will admit my bias. My bias is that modern medicine is the “Flat Earth Society,” and its adherents are infused with hubris – they “know not that they knoweth not.” In other words, classically trained physicians (and I am one) fall into the trap of forgetting that they don’t have all the answers, and that the truth is always unfolding. Today in 2013 what we believe is true will not be seen to be true in a hundred years.

In reality, even classically trained physicians use vitamins and mineral supplements all the time in their practice, and believe that they work – even the guys from the Ivy League who treat naturopaths and “complementary” physicians with such contempt. They prescribe Vitamin D all the time for bone preservation. They give iron for blood deficiency. They use sublingual and injectable B12 for pernicious anemia and neuropathy. These are vitamins and minerals.

They just don’t want you, the patient, to have the option of taking things you believe make sense. They want the FDA to control things, so only someone with an MD or DO behind their name can prescribe supplements.

But regardless of this, science marches on. In their special year-end edition, “Complementary Prescriptions Journal” reviewed the most important research findings from 2013. I excerpt from their extensive report:

Folate supplementation reduces the risk of colorecral adenomas, the precursor lesion to colorectal cancer (“Public Health Nutrition”)

Vitamin D intake reduces lung cancer in women (“American Journal of Clinical Nutrition”)

      Multivitamins might work for some people, bu most are synthetic. I prefer to take them derived from natural sources, such as an A&D cap derived from Cod Liver Oil, a non GMO vit C, the full complement of B vits in Brewers Yeast, or Nutritional Yeast, a non GMO vit E, and a mineral complex.

      Yes, I know this might be too much for some, but I would rather not put synthetics in my body (for obvious reasons),even if they are vitamins. :smile:
